Playing across a Divide

Israeli-Palestinian Musical Encounters

Benjamin Brinner

  • First book to address musical collaborations between Israelis and Palestinians, Jews and Arabs
  • Uniquely applies network theory to analysis of musicians' connections to each other and recording institutions
  • Lasting relevance in the context of conflict: proposes that networking between Jewish and Arab musicians together with creation of new musical forms offers the public models for mutually respectful and beneficial coexistence
